Great reliable compact car - top notch
Dash lights failed (slowly) Now it is hard to see speed information on the odometer at night (typical Chevy stuff there)
Excellent little car. It is a Corolla and at the time I paid 50% less than I would have to buy a Corolla (private transaction). I paid $4,000 for this car 1 year ago. My insurance company just paid me $6,800 - when they totaled it after an bad driver hit my PARKED Prizm!!!
I had the manual and it was fun to drive - not exciting at all, but fun and dependable and honestly who can ever drive at top speeds anywhere in New England (where I live). This is a great car for responsible people. Good for the budget and no worries.
Best part is that Toyota helped design this car it has a timing chain (not a belt) and it is generally super reliable. I'd buy another one if they hadn't APPRECIATED so much... now the blue book close to the Corrola's.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
